So what's a girl to do when they're down? Well as Linda Beeson suggested I do..toast myself with a favorite drink and that can be none other than...a margarita!
To me..the perfect gift to give myself or a friend! Yummy, fruity Margarita's!!!
While browsing in one of my favorite stores, Home Trends, I came across this adorable Margarita set. The bright colors of the mix and the rimming sugars caught my eye. But the packaging was not cute at all! So my idea...dress up the mix and make a cute card to give as a gift. Because who would not like to receive this?
Supplies: Drink Mix, Creative Imaginations paper, Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge, Doodlebug Cardstock, Vellum, Bo Bunny ribbons and Colorbox Chalk Ink in Lime Pastel and Tangerine.
For the drink mix I cut a piece of white cardstock to cover the drink label. I added the fun print paper to the white cardstock after inking the edges. I adhered that to the bottles. I used the watermelon diecut image and cut out the limes on my Cricut. After tying the bow around the bottle I adhered the little lime wedge.
For the card I cut an A2 size paper from white cardstock. Added the print paper. I hand drew a glass onto the vellum. Then I cut a smaller size from the orange cardstock to adhere under the vellum to look like the drink portion. I printed out the greeting in Microsoft Word and cute out a tag. The little lime on the tag is cut out from the print paper.
Last but not least...one more diecut lime wedge for inside the card to finish it off! Showing a store bought gift can be easily personalized into a very fun and thoughtful gift! In fact so fun...this birthday girl just might keep it for herself! Care to join me for a drink?!
Happy Birthday to all the July 26 Leo's! May the sun shine brightly on you!
